Stories are the ways that we engage with the world. However, our capacity to make, share, and evaluate stories has radically expanded over the since the late 20th Century, with profound impacts. In this course, you will engage with histories of mediated story production from around the world, and locate cutting edge media production within this historical context to better understand how to produce different types of compelling stories in your own practice. Key concepts that this course introduces include narrative structures and theories for different mediums, and transmedia storytelling, as well as engaging with audiences and story production technologies through algorithms, big data, and digital audience research in an appropriate and ethic fashion. From Storytelling to Data Mining introduces students in the Story Production and Immersive Media courses to central concerns of their field, as well as providing a focused engagement with story and technology for students in other programs.
